Harry Potter Scotland road trip

Harry Potter Scotland road trip

As Harry Potter fans celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first book being released, here we have 20 magical photos taken on a road trip in Scotland, all are either film locations of the Harry Potter movies or places that inspired the books written by JK Rowling. To take in the beautiful scenery it takes around 3 days to travel around the locations in the Highlands and Edinburgh, but all within a few hundred miles.

Pictured is The Elephant House, Edinburgh is the cafe where JK Rowling used regularly in the early days of her writing career, where she penned the Harry Potter books, making the cafe famous with fans and very busy with tourists. The Chamber of Secrets and Prisoner of Azkaban were written here as the reportedly JK Rowling found it cheaper to buy a drink and wrote in this cafe the whole day, rather than paying for her heating bill at home. Using the bus or train park and rides are the easiest ways to access the centre of Edinburgh.
